The Special Administrative Board of the Saint Louis Public School District voted to place Proposition 1, a $0.75 operating tax levy increase, on the April 5 ballot. If approved by voters, Proposition 1 funds would be used to: continue offering early childhood education, expand character and alternative education options, improve safety and security equipment and personnel, and offer competitive salaries to teachers and staff.

The proposed $0.75 increase in the operating tax levy for the Saint Louis Public School District would be the first increase in 25 years. The current operating tax levy rate of $3.75 per $100 of assessed valuation has been in place since 1991. If approved, Proposition 1 would generate an estimated $27.8 Million in revenue each year for SLPS and charter schools in the City of St. Louis.
